Polish FM to visit Iran soon

TEHRAN (ISNA)- Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski plans to visit Iran on Friday, said Polish Ambassador to Iran Juliusz Jacek Gojl.

“Our Foreign Minister is visiting Iran to see what is happening in Iran in the ‘new’ era,” Gojl told ISNA in an exclusive interview.

“The Foreign Minister will visit Iran on Friday night for a three-day visit at top of a 20-men delegation of Polish businessmen and traders to explore new investment opportunities in Iran and boost Tehran-Warsaw ties,” he added.

The visit opens on February 28 and closes on March 2. Sikorski will also meet with officials of Iranian Ministry of Industries. This is the first Polish foreign minister’s visit to Iran in 10 years.

The ambassador said Iranian and Polish officials will also discuss ways for the further expansion of mutual trade and economic cooperation.

Diplomatic ties between Iran and Poland started in the 17th century and several large institutions for Oriental studies are now active in Poland.

Iranians hosted 100,000 Polish and provided them with welfare facilities during the Second World War after Germany occupied the East European country.

Ties between the two friendly countries of Iran and Poland are growing and the two sides are seeking to bolster relations in all arenas.
